Civenex 2016 kicks off at a new venue in May Civenex 2016 kicks off at a new venue in May

Registrations are once again open for the Civenex 2016 civil engineering expo, to be held this year at the Hawkesbury Showgrounds in Richmond, NSW, on 18 and 19 May.

Billed as "Australia’s largest infrastructure expo", Civenex aims to bring together construction contractors and key decision makers from the public and private sectors.

Supported by the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA) and the NSW government, the free expo will feature live machinery demonstrations, expert panels, educational seminars and exhibitions from over 300 companies.

Exhibitors represent a wide range of infrastructure categories including building and construction, demolition, landscaping, fleet management, waste management, roads and workplace safety.

The event will also be an opportunity for direct contact between industry contractors and those making planning decisions for government and private sector projects.

"Businesses, large or small, will be talking directly to people who actually make, or influence, millions of dollars in buying decisions for councils, federal and state government departments and major contractors," IPWEA director Bill Woodcock says.

Exhibitors can also win awards for their products and displays as the IPWEA will be judging entries in categories such as best innovation and best environmental product. In addition to the business and marketing opportunities, Civenex will also have a hot rod display, vintage machinery and bus display as well as a live machinery auction.

Event organisers say the new venue Hawkesbury Showgrounds Richmond is located about 60 minutes from both the Sydney CBD and the Blue Mountains, making it a central location for those travelling from the city or regional Australia. Public transport, parking and accommodation are all located within walking distance of the venue.
